Some really juicy possible casting news has hit the interwebs via our brothers in harm over at Bloody Disgusting. They’re reporting that Columbia Pictures is speaking closely with Julianne Moore to portray the thoroughly crazed mother of Carrie White in the remake of Carrie starring Chloe Moretz.
Look for Kimberly Peirce’s take on Carrie to be in theatres on March 15, 2013.
In the story shy high school student Carrie White is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying.
Sissy Spacek played the character in the first movie, with Piper Laurie playing her mother, and Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley and William Katt rounding out the cast. Both Spacek and Laurie got Oscar nominations for their work in the 1976 film.
